My daughter-in-law brought this dish once for Shabbos and we had not one tiny piece of schnitzel left. I filed the recipe away and knew I had to try it with potato starch instead of flour for Pesach. It works perfectly and freezes well too. There are a few steps — marinate, fry, sauce, and bake, but none of them are too difficult. You’ll see how much your family will appreciate it and you’ll want to double the recipe next time!

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Make the Schnitzel

  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Add chicken cutlet pieces and mix well to coat evenly. Cover and place in fridge for at least a half hour.

  2. Meanwhile, prepare sauce: Heat oil in a saucepan and sauté onions and garlic until golden, about 15 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Boil for two minutes and remove from heat.

  3. Remove marinated chicken pieces from fridge. Heat a generous amount of oil in a large frying pan. Dip chicken pieces into potato starch and fry a few minutes on each side, until golden. Drain in a pan lined with paper towels. Repeat until all the chicken is used up.

  4. Halfway through, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Place all the chicken pieces in a 9x13-inch aluminum pan. Pour sauce over chicken until pieces are evenly coated. Bake for a half hour, uncovered. You can cover it part of the time if you see that the sauce is getting completely absorbed.


If you like a lot of sauce with your chicken pieces, double the amount of sauce. You can also freeze it on its own and use with any chicken, meat, or even hamburgers.


Serving Suggestion

  1. Put a small amount of mashed potatoes in a ring form on a plate. Remove ring. Spoon chicken pieces over mashed potatoes. Drizzle with sauce. Garnish with greens of your choice.

    I would make this for supper a day in advance. Can I fry the chicken & refrigerate in advance and then heat up with sauce?

    Pesach Ketchup Substitute

    This presentation is definitely beautiful! We don't use garlic on Pesach so I always omit that ingredient. What can I do to substitute ketchup in a recipe?

    What about tomato paste watered down?

    What about kosher for passover ketchup? Gefen has one without corn syrup and no garlic either.
